Summary
Black Sun was the most powerful and infamous crime syndicate of its time in the galaxy. Black Sun held a massive amount of reach and influence, extending its tendrils of corruption deep in the various galactic governments of each era. It was infamous for its involvement in piracy and smuggling. But smuggling was just the tip of the iceberg of the galaxy-wide organization. It was involved in every known type of illegal activity, its information networks surpassed even the accuracy and scope of Imperial Intelligence

, several gangsters joined forces and began seizing control of lower-city neighborhoods. The gangsters had profitable spice- and weapons-trafficking operations, and their members, almost to a man, had an extraordinary taste for violence. Civilians had been extorted until they had nothing left to extort - afterwards, they were used for target practice, many city blocks were incinerated just for the pleasure. Black Sun became a force had to be reckoned with and its influence began to stretch beyond Coruscant.
During the Galactic Empire era the resources available to Black Sun rivaled those belonging to a large planetary army, including foot soldiers. Below the leader of Black Sun were nine Vigos, each Vigo ruled over his or her own territory and sector.
